So Much Going On!

It’s been a rough time at the Town’s End. It’s been five months since we last had to pull out the crutches, so we were due for another round, right? While my husband hobbles around cursing his condition, I’m prepping to take the family into low-carb diet mode for the next five weeks (which sucks…
